Coming Up Roses

"You'll be swell! You'll be great! Gonna have the whole world on the plate! Starting here, starting now, honey, everything's coming up roses!" -- Stephen Sondheim -- Coming Up Roses is a series of photographs looking at adolescent development in the context of contemporary culture. The project mixes portraits and landscapes as metaphors in order to examine the contemporary attitudes of universal praise in parenting, happiness as a facade and the spectacle of excess. In my photographs, I emphasize personal experience and examples from my own life which examine some of the larger issues in which I am interested.
